Int J Med Public Health 2016 Apr;6(2):73-83

United Nations Children's Fund, New Delhi, INDIA.

Background: Chronic diseases are increasingly becoming a health burden in terms of both morbidity and mortality in low and middle-income countries (LMICs). The role of body mass index (BMI) especially overweight and obesity in the prevalence of multimorbidity, the occurrence of two or more chronic conditions, is understudied in LMICs where two thirds of the world's obese individuals reside. We estimated the association between BMI and prevalence of chronic non communicable disease multimorbidity in six LMICs. Read More

South Asia Network for Chronic Disease, Public Health Foundation of India, Gurgaon, Haryana, India.

Background: Preeclampsia/eclampsia is responsible for upwards of 20% of maternal morbidity and mortality in developing countries.

Objective: We examined the relationship between frequency of food intake and symptoms of preeclampsia eclampsia and eclampsia among Indian women aged 15-49 ( = 39,657) for the most recent live birth in the 5 years preceding the National Family Health Survey-3 (2005-2006). Multiple logistic regression analysis was used to estimate the association between frequency of intake of specific food items, and self-reported symptoms of preeclampsia eclampsia and eclampsia, adjusting for maternal age, and other potential socio-demographic confounders.

Awareness on causes, consequences and preventive measures of obesity among urban married women in India.

Int J Med Public Health 2013 Oct;3(4):293-302

South Asia Network for Chronic Disease, Public Health Foundation of India, New Delhi, India.

Background: In spite of the numerous chronic diseases that have been linked to obesity, studies focusing on the awareness regarding causes, consequences and strategies to prevent and control of obesity among women are lacking in the literature, especially in developing countries such as India, where obesity is culturally accepted and nurtured and women bearded the highest weight gain in the recent decade.

Objective: We explored the awareness regarding causes, consequences and preventive measures of obesity among 325 ever-married aged 20-54 years women with different levels of body mass index (BMI) in the national capital territory of Delhi representing urban India.

Materials And Methods: A population based follow-up survey of women systematically selected from the second round of National Family Health Survey (NFHS-2, 1998-99) samples who were re-interviewed after four years in 2003. Read More

Int J Med Public Health 2013 Mar;3(1):48-54

Population Council, 42, Golf Links, First Floor, New Delhi, India.

Background: India has the largest percentage/number of vitamin A deficient children in the world. However, the effectiveness of a program of vitamin A supplementation at the population level has been rarely examined. We aim to examine the status of vitamin A supplementation among preschool children in India and its association with their socioeconomic and demographic characteristics and the social and economic development level of the State in which they reside.
